Great hostel with good location, Vondel Park is so pretty, perfect for the summertime! The bar offers good opportunities to meet fellow travellers and the staff are really nice. I'd especially like to mention Slaven, Ben and Steve, they each helped us in different ways and went above and beyond what I'd normally expect from hostel staff.. Thanks guys!

Stayed here with a friend for 3 nights. Location was uptown and great. 5 minutes walk to the Vincent Van Gogh and other museums. Great bars and restaurants at about a 10 minute walk. Staff were helpful and fun loving. The only thing I could point out to other travellers is that they dont have an elevator. We were at... More

The flying pig is a nice colorful clean and warm cheap hostel in Amsterdam. Perfect if you prefer uptown to the chaotic downtown. The best place to stay for young people who want to have some fun and see the most beautiful places of the city. Nice rooms and people

Only stayed for a night but would definitely recommend! Quite expensive for a dorm room but the bar is really cool and the room itself was really clean and comfortable! Be prepared for a lot of "peace and love" talk and loads of people in dreads

It's not the cheapest but it was by far worth paying a small bit extra. A great location, close to everything but still a quiet area, we had a balcony over the street and there is nothing but a large park outside. Still a great party atmosphere downstairs and a nice communal smoking room. Staff very friendly. The best part... More

Hi there, Thanks a lot for leaving this nice review :) Makes us very happy to read this and to know you had such a good time with us!

We thought we had booked downtown but actually booked uptown. We were a little angry with ourselves thinking we would be way outside the centre, but it was all for the best. So, don't let the location put you off... it's walking distance to the center (we like to walk, though) Friendly staff, clean rooms & showers & toilets... I... More

One of the best hostels I have stayed at so far. The beds were very comfortable, the showers and bathrooms were clean, the free breakfast was great. I could keep going on.

Firstly let me just say I am budget traveler and self proclaimed nomad. Opting to uproot my current existence every couple of years for a new location and perspective. But with that in mind, comes the task of travelling and living on a tight budget, particularly when it comes to temporary living quarters. And that's where the Flying Pig Hostel... More

Awesome atmosphere as soon as you walk through the door! Love the fact there is double bunk beds, perfect for couples and friends. Location is spot on! Feel like a local being right next to Vondelpark. The bar does great drink deals as well as brekky in the morning. Perfect place to start your day getting info from the bartenders... More
